Can't go wrong with Craftsmen tools. These things really give you max access. One of the best buys I've made through Sears. Anyone looking for a new socket set should pick these up.
I just received this on my doorstep. I am very disappointed in the quality of this set. The selector on the driver is very flimsy, the ratcheting internals feel extremely cheap, and the overall feel of the set is just not what I have come to expect from Craftsman. I have seen and felt harbor freight tools of comparable quaility at a quarter of the price. I was horrified when I turned the package over and it says made in china. Craftsman made in China? Yup, Sears has lost me as customer and I will never buy another Craftsman tool again unless I find an old American made one at a yard sale.
The Craftsman 19 piece Universal Max Axess 3/8" Drive Socket and Ratchet Set is a great value. This ratchet set is designed for the easiest access for the mechanic.
Can be very handy to a point.
This was a very nice set of tools for the kind of work that I need it to do at the time money very well spend
Awesome little set of sockets. Can handle a lot of jobs and not have to carry a lot of extra sockets. Comes with a nice little pre molded case to keep everything accountable and organized. Delivers some serious grip under the hood, in the house, on the jobsite and anywhere else you'll need to grab multiple types of fasteners like quad, hex, 12-point, external Torx, spline or even rounded.
Very sturdy and handy has fit into some spots others would not works on bolts in not so great shape also.
I purchased this for my dad who is a huge tool guy. He has several socket sets but was impressed with this one as it eliminates the need for an extension. I am really glad I got it for him, he loved it.
My husband loves craftsman tools and I love Sears discounts and sales so purchasing these tools was simple and we didn't spend much on them. My husband has already used these and is so happy with them. The ease of ordering makes purchasing items from Sears easy to do and the web site is user friendly! We will be ordering more tools and goods from Sears.com
I like this set and use it on many different projects. I also use it with my C3 power ratchet. There is a wide range of sockets in both SAE & metric sizes; the hand ratchet is very well made and lets you work in confined spaces.
Hubby really like them.
These tools are well made. They are nicely machined. I would prefer that they be chrome over the black oxide. The ratchet feels good in your hand. I can't imagine any fastener that these sockets would work on. I would recommend tools to anybody.
this tool is great for tight places.
This ratchet set is my favorite tool in my toolbox. I would definitely recommend this ratchet set to anyone.
So many times in past years i could have used a set like this but was stuck using an old wrench. now my job is easier then ever! no more slipping wrench... just quick and easy turns!
Ratchet feels nice in your hands, sockets fit well into the ratchet and hold. All in all a good set for tricky situations, not something I (would want to) use as an everyday tool tho.
My only real issue is the cheap 'socket rail' that comes with it. The sockets easily fall out of the rail if you allow it to flex at all, and being this thru-hole design there's not a tray or socket rail available to hold them so you are stuck using what's provided. The printing on the sockets isn't placed in the same spot on all of the sockets either so when you have them in the rail some of the printing is turned off the the sides a bit, but I'm just picky like that.
I SAW THIS AND THOUGHT ,WHY ! THE WHY IS FOR TIGHTENING THE TOP NUT ON STRUTS VS USING AN INPACT GUN WHICH IS NOT RECOMMENDED, I ALSO FOUND OUT THEY ARE THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE ALLEN KEY STYLE TIEROD ENDS AND BALL JOINTS APART ON THE NEWER FORDS. I BOUGHT ANOTHER SET FOR A FRIEND AND I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU ADD A SET TO YOUR TOOL BOX !
Set works supreme on its own. Attachments to use with 1/4 in or older style ratchets not so much. only could find the 1/8 to 1/4 in adapter not other way around. so the larger one will work with all max access products but the smaller size 1/4 max access drive will only work with its own stuff. now onto max access to normal style ratchets. as you would expect you can no longer use the pass thru "fine" Adapters seem to go into the ratchet from the back and if you need any leverage from the bolt or pressure to hold it on the bolt the adapter pops out! So this is a major fail unless you are just using for small home products these wrenches are semi useless. Totally useless if you are using for Pro applications.
Did the trick for what i needed it for, and for what it is. that said, the casing is pretty cheap and the pieces are very tough to get out of it when needed. But, its a socket set that works as advertised, so no complaints
